In a pub watching football on tv waiting for the football to begin nearby and it played really good music including The Rolling Stones, Simon and Garfunkel and others alongside Let It Be (album version), Paperback Writer, and Paul's Silly Love Songs.

Best music ive heard whilst out in a long time.

I had a kind of Beatley moment this morning. I came back from my morning shower when my roommate said "Anna! There's a stinkbug on your John Lennon poster!" I called the stinkbug a rather rude name and then proceeded to flush it away. Sorry if that was a lame story, it sounded better in my head.

I don't know if this counts,but last night I was laid in bed listening to Revolver whilst some standup comedy show was on. The guy who was on stage did some weird dance that was like perfectly in time with Got To Get You Into My Life (well I think it was. xD)
For some reason,I instantly thought I should post it here.

Another one was I was at a Portuguese water park when I saw a beetle floating along in the water and decided to call it Paul. My dad then suggested I should rename it Yoko Ono because it lives off dead beatles.

EDIT: I just turned on the TV to The Simpsons. 
The first thing I heard was "Doctor Robert Whateverthesurnamewas!"

HA HA! Mother Nature's Son and annab93 share something besides a great sense of humour- they both have awesome Dads!

During one of the endless drives across country our family took when my Dad got transferred, every once in awhile he would tune in a Top 40 radio station to relieve my brother and I from the coma-inducing country radio stations he always sought out. Paul McCartney didn't help our case for 'good' music when Let 'Em In was new and playing in constant rotation. My Dad always had some flippant comment to make: "Christ, are they gonna let those people IN already?" "How do they get anything done when somebody's constantly knocking at the door?" "Hey, stop singing and open the damn door yourself!"

Yeah, right Pop, hopefully 'Before the Next Teardrop Falls' - uuggh!

Was in an Asda supermarket where ive previously bought Revolver tshirt and a Yellow Submarine tshirt so had a look at their stock and they had this hoodie (which is strangely not in their online site). Image Enlarger

Needless to say i was a sucker and paid the price. My one weakness is beatles, would rather miss a meal and buy some nice beatles thing. Thats why i have to be careful about where i go and what i buy. Will do for the coming winter.

During my drive home from the office yesterday, I was listening to a radio station that was broadcasting live from a popular local bar. After the Rush song "The Spirit Of The Radio" had finished, the deejay made a comment that the song featured the best ending to a rock and roll song he had ever heard. 

I immediately started shouting at my radio "what about A Day In The Life, you idiot!". paul-mccartney

It was at that point, he started asking the bar patrons if they agreed with him. The first two guys he asked both said, "no...A Day In The Life is better".

So, while Maine radio and those who broadcast it continue to suck bilge water, it's nice to know that Mainers don't buy into it.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Zig,

I personally don't listen to the radio on my work drives- I keep a constant rotation of the Nuggets box set CDs of U.S. and British rock/pop/psychedlic songs by the hundreds of incredible & mostly obscure bands who formed and recorded from 1965- 68, every one of them wanting to become the next Beatles - but I would have loved to hear a streaming sound clip of the guys in the bar saying A Day In The Life is better!

Maybe it's just that we fans pay more attention when The Beatles' name is overheard in a conversation, or it catches our eye in print, and it's pretty much agreed that we're always hearing one of their songs, from a car radio or in stores or elevators - and, to me, in every instance it happens, it's always a positive thing, never someone groaning when a song comes on or saying anything one would consider offensive.

Paul McCartney is selling his Aston Martin from '64. Anyone wants to borrow me $600 000?
